Win Free Wedding Photography from VeVi Photography!

Win Free Wedding Photography from VeVi Photography (1)

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, more than anything else in your wedding, you should invest as much as you can in your wedding photographs. After the cake has been eaten and the dress is relegated to the back of your wardrobe, the photos taken of your special day are all that remain (well, apart from the marriage of course!) They will sit on your parents’ mantelpiece forever and when you’re old and grey you’ll be dragging out that photo album to show your grandkids how young and gorgeous you looked.

I know I drill this fact into you over and over again, but I’m so strongly passionate about the importance of capturing life’s most precious moments, that I’ll nag you about it as long as this blog exists! Plus, the number one post-wedding regret I hear from brides is that they wish they’d spent more on their photography because they’re unhappy with the results they got when scrimping on it.

Those of you that haven’t got your photographer for your 2016 wedding booked yet, listen up! I’ve partnered with my babe Andreea of VeVi Photography to give one lucky couple completely FREE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY!! Time to celebrate!

Free Wedding Photography for Animal Lovers!

taylor wolf free wedding photography (6)

Yes, you read that right! If you’re an animal lover you could be in for the chance of having your wedding photographed absolutely FREE. I know this sounds too good to be true but I promise it’s not!

Wedding photographer Gemma of Taylor Wolf Photography loves animals, and animal themed weddings, so much that she is running this amazing competition for one lucky Rock n Roll couple to win their wedding photography with her.

“There’s a reason why I called my business what I did, because I’m crazy about animals!”, Gemma told me. “I incorporated the name Wolf because they are monogamous animals, and they value their family and social connections enormously but also their individuality. Much like me and the lovely couples I get to work with!”

Maybe you’re wearing a leopard print dress or zebra print shoes? Is there going to be lots of taxidermy or an owl delivering your rings? You could even be eloping on a safari or getting married at a zoo!

There are two prizes up for grabs and a juicy 15% discount will be emailed to every single person that enters, even if they don’t win!

Ocean View Family-Focused Wedding

Ocean Kave competition winners wedding (44)

Lee and Lowri were the lucky couple who won the free wedding photography contest that I recently hosted with VeVi Photography. Their wedding was held at Ocean Kave in Devon, which proved to be the perfect spot for their family-centric, colourful chaos wedding!

Lowri told me all about the amazing day. “We are still floating, after the incredible day that was our happy ending. We have both gone through a lot of painful times to get to it which made it all the more special. I had gone through a very acrimonious divorce and moved to Devon, to heal by the sea, near where I grew up. Gradually colour and happiness began to return to my life and once I decided to dip my toe in the water of dating I met Lee!”

“As soon as we got engaged we knew we wanted this to be a celebration of all the amazing close friends and family who had supported us both”, she continued. “We also knew we wanted nothing to be impersonal or super traditional. We both wanted to get married by the sea but finding a venue that would let us have our wedding our way seemed impossible. Then I stumbled across Ocean Kave and we booked it the day we saw it even though at this point the reception room wasn’t even built! We loved it because they said we could really personalise the space. They suggested we got married in the kave (yes it’s an actual cave) at twilight, having kicked off the party at 2pm, which sounded great to us. We loved that we got to enjoy the fun we had planned first, and it removed formality.”

Win Free Wedding Photography With VeVi Wedding Photography!

win free wedding photos with VeVi Wedding Photography and rocknrollbride_2

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll already know how much of an advocate I am to the value of wedding photography. I’ve covered the topic multiple times before. However I also know that a lot of you are on a strict budget, and as much as you would love to be able to book your dream wedding photographer, it’s just not financially viable.

Which is why I was utterly overjoyed when Reading (holla!!) based wedding photographer Andreea Virna of VeVi Wedding Photography got in touch wanting to offer an amazing plethora of photography prizes (try saying that fast five times!) to Rock n Roll Bride readers.

Firstly, a little bit about the girl behind the camera. “My name is Andreea and I started out as a fashion photographer”, she writes. “Before I knew it, I fell in love with the excitement, the dresses, the details and the stories that come together at that one special day. My wedding photography, much like my fashion work, has a distinctive off-beat style, and is quirky in its own way. I love what I do and put my heart and soul into it which I hope translates into beautiful images. I want my clients to be able to cherish those precious moments through my work. I love being involved in weddings and find it an honour to have a day immortalised through my artistic vision.”

The most amazing thing about this competition is that Andreea isn’t just offering one prize, she’s giving away THREE! To qualify for this incredible contest you must be getting married during 2015.

First prize: An engagement shoot, full day of wedding photography (up to 10 hours) with up to 650 fully edited wedding images on disc.

Win Your Wedding Photography with We Heart Pictures

WHP_RNRB_002

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, hopefully you’ll realise just how passionate I am about investing in really great wedding photographs. The beautiful imagery on this site doesn’t just appear out of thin air after all! However I am also acutely aware that the expense of it can be too much for some of you. Which is why I’m thrilled when I get to host contests like this one!

Today’s contest is in collaboration with the amazing We Heart Pictures, who’s work you may have seen gracing the pages of this blog many times before. Husband and wife team Hector and Charlie, are based in London but love to document weddings all around the UK and even abroad.

“We could say we are the antithesis to traditional wedding photography”, they write. “We are more about capturing the vibe from the day than posed photographs.”

“We get to witness the good times, the happiness of couples, families and friends. That feeling is infectious and that is a super plus to what we do. We make honest and creative photography of the best time in people’s life.”

Washington DC based wedding photographer Rachel Couch of A Muse Photography loves nothing more than working with couples on their wedding day. “I also do a fair amount of fashion and lifestyle work”, she writes, “and I really value my ability to shoot within several different genres since it makes me look at everything with fresh eyes. ‘Magical realism’ is the name of the game — I try to create photographs that are both epic and cinematic, but also honest and intimate.”

Win the £40,000 Wedding of Your Dreams from Confetti.co.uk!

win your wedding with confetti and rocknrollbride

I’ve heard way too many stories from people who’ve had to postpone or even cancel getting married simply because they couldn’t afford it. That makes me so very sad. Of course the amount you spend has less than zero indication on how awesome your marriage will be, but if you have little or no savings, even a completely budget wedding can be out of the question.

I’ve been championing budget weddings for years but just because you can’t – or don’t want! – spend thousands of pounds on one just day of your life, doesn’t mean you won’t spend hours dreaming about what you’d do if money was no object… right? Which is why I am so completely held over heels, hearts in my eyes, back flipping down the street excited to share this contest with you all today!

When Confetti got in touch to tell me they wanted to give someone a wedding prize package worth over £40,000 I jumped at the chance to share it with you! They are offering one of you the chance to win everything for your wedding. From the your choice of Marriott hotel venue to the entertainment, the hen and stag dos to your wedding dress and accessories, the photography, videography and a photo booth… oh and even a luxury honeymoon to Cyprus!

This amazing prize includes:

♥ A wedding reception at your choice of one of the 11 Marriott Hotels in the UK (subject to availability, see the venue terms and conditions)
♥ A luxury honeymoon from Kanika Hotels and Resorts in Cyprus.
♥ Your wedding dress from Eternity Bridal.
♥ Shoes from Crystal Bridal Accessories.
♥ Tiara from Fabledreams.
♥ Dress storage from Empty Box Company.

Attention Aussie Brides: Linzie Russo is Offering You Free Wedding Photography!

Linzie Russo free wedding photography 1

It’s a sad day when such a talented photographer ups sticks from the UK and moves over to sunnier shores… well it is for us anyway, you guys down under are in for a treat! Wedding photographer Linzie Russo is a half Aussie, half Scot babe who was born in Iran and has spent most of her life travelling the world! For the past three years she’s called Glasgow home, but has recently made the decision to move back to Sydney in dire need of some nicer weather!

To celebrate, she wants to offer one very lucky Rock n Roll Bride reader in Australia completely free wedding photography. Oh my goodness!

Linzie Russo free wedding photography 5

“My photography has been described as creative, natural, fresh and romantic”, she told me. “I have also been described as a ninja because I work alone, manage to get everywhere yet no one knows I am about! I am a lover of natural light and sunshine, which is often hard working in Scotland that doesn’t have much! I love the details of a wedding that has been created over many months to make their wedding personal to the couple.”

“My favourite part of the day is the morning watching the bride get ready. I love being creative in photographing the dresses, shoes, flowers and rings. After that the next best part of the day is the moment I have when the couple are alone and we get to play around with the portraits. I love a bride who isn’t afraid of getting a bit a sand on her dress or climbing fences to get into a field in order to get the ‘winning’ shot!”

Linzie is moving back to Sydney in December. If you are getting married in Australia between December 20th 2014 and December 31st 2015, and are yet to have your photographer booked, this one’s for you!

Win Free (yes free!) Wedding Photography from Dale Weeks

win wedding photography dale weeks alternative photographer london_0022

New kid on the block Dale Weeks is a force to be reckoned with. What he lacks in experience (starting his career as a music photographer, he’s been shooting weddings professionally for a little under a year) he totally makes up for in incredible talent and the utmost enthusiasm!

“I dropped out of college to tour in a band and when that didn’t work out I started getting into taking photos of bands”, he writes. “Then a couple of years ago I discovered Carl Zoch and some of the other amazing wedding photographers out there. Their images inspired me so much that I decided to take myself seriously and start my own wedding photography business. I love shooting couples in a natural setting and bringing out real smiles!”

Win Your Wedding Photography with Rutko Photographers

rutkophotographers-02

It is my life mission to save couples from terrible wedding photography. But picking the right wedding photographer is a big decision and I know one that a lot of my readers struggle with. For some of you especially, this is even more stressful as it’s compounded with worries about the cost of it all. While I’m a firm believer that you should allocate a sizeable chunk of your wedding budget into the images that you’ll keep forever, I’m not totally blind to the fact that for some of you, any investment at all just isn’t possible.

Which is why I’m always thrilled to be able to share the work of photographers who also want to give away their services to one lucky couple. It’s even more exciting to me when their images are as utterly flippin’ breathtaking as Ania & Michal of Rutko Photographers.

rutkophotographers-04

Based in Europe, they split their time between living in the UK and Poland but willing to travel worldwide for a damn good wedding. Ania explains, “Over the past few years we shot many classic, glamorous, chic, posh and fancy weddings. As much as we loved our couples and every wedding that we shoot, our hearts still belong to more alternative style. We like quirky ideas and couples who think outside the box. Handmade, unique and DIY details make us very happy as do intimate ceremonies and people that love a mix of old and new. We adore all the offbeat projects and kick-ass weddings that are featured on Rock n Roll Bride. These are simply the ones that we would love to shoot the most.”

The prize

And so to do so, this generous couple would like to offer one completely free wedding package to one very lucky Rock n Roll Bride reader! This is a price package worth £1600 and includes unlimited coverage of your wedding day by two professional wedding photographers and a disc of 450+ high res (print quality) fully edited images, as well as low res versions for sharing online. The contest is open to all readers of Rock n Roll Bride but travel and accommodation must be covered if the wedding is taking place outside of the UK.

rutkophotographers-08

To enter

Entry couldn’t be simpler. Email Ania & Michal on hello@rutkophotographers.com and let them know:

♥ Your names
♥ Your wedding date
♥ Your wedding location & venue
♥ Include a recent photograph of the two of you
♥ Tell them a little about your wedding (protip: go all out to impress!) Let them know all about your little details and quirks, and what it is that’s going to make your wedding totally unique and awesome! Feel free to include photos or an inspiration board to help to illustrate your ideas too.

I love that I can call so many of my regular contributors real life friends. It means that when it comes to sharing the amazingly generous and totally awesome special offers of someone I actually know and love offline, I can genuinely wax lyrical about how rad they are online.

Lee Robbins of Robbins Photographic is a wedding photographer from Brighton. I’ve featured his briz-illiant photography on my blog too many times to mention. His eye for detail and the way he see the world is so unique and oh so beautiful but totally and utterly bad ass.
